Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The mid-engine two-seat Ferrari 458 is radical looking from any angle. From the front, the trailing headlight LEDs and strange slits in the bodywork are completely original. While they're unique, they still speak to the Ferrari faithful.
Far more provocative, however, is the rear and its bulging fenders. The 458 Italia's coupe profile is probably the one that's most distressing to Ferrari fans because the back half looks enormous compared to the hood. The front bumper has two unique aerodynamic winglets that direct air around the car for more down force.
The 458 Spider features a power-retractable hardtop that opens and closes in just 14 seconds, according to Ferrari. A glass wind deflector automatically raises and lowers between the head restraints for maximum comfort during open-air driving. An issue with most convertibles is available cargo space when the top is down, but in the 458 Spider there's additional space behind the seats for more luggage or even a golf bag.
The car's 4.5-liter V-8 engine is good for 570 horsepower and a zero-to-62-mph time of 3.4 seconds. Ferrari claims the 458 Italia has a top speed of 202 mph while the 458 Spider convertible manages 199 mph. A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is controlled only by paddle shifters on the racing-inspired steering wheel, and dual electronic gauges frame a center tachometer. Because the engine sits behind the seats, the coupe's weight is balanced 42/58, front to rear, which should make for fun days at the track.
